Do you have a move coming up? Whether this is your first or tenth move, it’s possible for you to feel underprepared and disorganized. Organizing and figuring out which moving supplies you need ahead of time is the best way to help you prepare for your move. You may be thinking all you need is some tape and some boxes, but there are lots of things you need to have a successful move. In this article, we will go over the essential moving supplies you need for your move.

The Essential Moving Supplies You Need

  1. The Basics – The bare basics include the boxes and tape. However, you will also need scissors, markers, bubble wrap, and packing paper. These are the essentials you will need to pack almost everything in your home.
  2. The Heavy-Duty Supplies –There are lots of items in your home that are heavier and quite large. It would be best if you had the right moving supplies to pack these items appropriately and safely. It is always a good idea to have a dolly, hand cart, and furniture pads to move the heavier items without hurting yourself. If you are loading your truck on your own, you may also want to consider rope and bungee cords to secure these heavier furniture items.
  3. The Final Touches –Having a label maker and blankets is great when you get towards the end of packing. Extra blankets will help protect fragile items. Even if you think you’ve wrapped them safely in bubble wrap, the blankets will add an extra layer of cushioning. Your boxes must be labeled correctly, and a label maker is a great way to ensure you don’t forget to mark anything.
